Hops for Hope 5k Beer Run/Walk 2019

St. Charles, IL

Hops for Hope 5K is a twist on the traditional 5K! The event is timed and the course is certified, whether you are a runner or walker this event is for you. You can take a casual stroll with your friends and sip on beer samples throughout the course or you can run to get your best time and skip the beer stops (discounted price) or chug your beer and go

The 5K will start at the beautiful Mount Saint Mary Park in St. Charles and head towards Geneva on the scenic path through Wheeler Park and end back at Mount Saint Mary Park for the Award Ceremony!

THAT'S A WEIRD TWIST?! We think you mean delicious and fun! Throughout the 5K there will be Refueling Stations (Beer Stops) featuring local craft breweries handing out 3-ounce beer samples to runners. Throughout the 5K you will sample 6 different craft beers. At the Awards Ceremony you will be able to receive 2 pints of your favorite craft beer you sampled throughout the 5K.

Who is Project Mobility?
Project Mobility is the nonprofit 501(c)3 organization of The Bike Rack in St. Charles. Our mission is to provide the freedom of mobility to children, adults and wounded soldiers with disabilities through adaptive cycling. 

We have had a very busy and rewarding year!
 We gave away 12 adaptive bikes to children, adults and wounded soldiers! We supported 15 soldier rides with wounded veterans. We are very appreciative to be a part of these rides. We get to give some freedom back to the  individuals who fought for our freedom. We feel it is the least we can do to show our support for those who have served and risked their lives for us. The Project Mobility Crew also provided 47 adaptive bike days and in-services with many different disability organizations, hospitals and schools across the country. We went to 19 different states and traveled 24,336 miles so far this year! 

We were able to give the freedom of mobility to many amazing people! Here are a few stories.

Junior: A father who ended up in a wheelchair from getting shot protecting his daughter.

Avery: A child with such a rare gene mutation only 4.5 people out of 10 

million world-wide have it. 

Tynan: A child that was almost 5 years old that underwent an anatomical left hemispherectomy, in which surgeons removed the left side of his brain.

For 2019 we want to top those numbers and need your help! Hops for Hope 5K will help us reach their goal by starting the year off right! 

This year we are raising money for Nick
